'Paraworld' - Screens

by Rainier on May 21, 2004 @ 4:43 p.m. PDT

Paraworld combes for the first time ever a setting never seen before with personalized unit management, it brings new life to the real-time strategy genre. Modern elements blend with primeval conditions in a long forgotten, incredibly beautiful prehistoric world. Creatures long extinct come once more to life, a constant danger to anyone living in the area.

Made possible by a sensational new 3D technology, the incredibly detailed graphics allow players to immerse themselves deeply into the action. Alone the comparative sizes of the different dinosaurs is impresssive. However, these giants do not only represent a threat. They can also be used as domestic animals. Of course, it's also a lot of fun to ride into battle on the head of a 14m Apatosaurus...

Another completely new feature is the clear and easyto- use unit management.

The games figures are individuals with strong characters who gain experience and can be promoted to higher positions. The most experienced hero of all becomes chief and determines the strategy for his tribe. This engenders a personal relationship with his subjects, whom he must use wisely in their struggles against giant dinosaurs and enemy tribes, each with specific advantages and disadvantages.

This game creates an atmosphere of adventure eagerness for the fray. The conquest of a hostile environment and the need to fight for survival against enemy tribes allow players to experience this primeval world first hand. A massive conspiracy unfolds...
